Highlight Magic by Ben Berger

Highlight Magic contains top flight routines for close-up, parlor, and stage. While not every effect requires some knowledge of sleights, some require mid-level skill. Nelson Hahne did the pen and ink illustrations, and as usual, his work is top notch, too.


  • Foreword.
  • From the Publisher. Introductory comments from John Snyder, Jr., magic dealer and past president of the IBM.
  • THE SPIRIT OF THE COBRA. Three cards selected and returned to deck are tossed into a lidless box. Patter about a Cobra and a card peeps over the edge of the box and rises. Other cards are seen to be surprisingly and magnetically attached to the first. This continues with a column of cards several feet in height all facing the audience with the exception of the top one. The top card is turned around and seen to be one of the chosen. Performance is repeated for the next two cards. (No sleights)
  • THE ATOMIC PENNY. An impromptu comedy close-up coin effect where the spectator is left with a bent coin as a souvenir of your abilities.
  • THINK STOP. A simplified version of Professor Hofzinser's "Here, There, and Everywhere" card effect.
  • REVERSED MISDIRECTION. A gag for magicians to use on other magicians.
  • CENTERISE. A card effect where the selected card rises from the center of a borrowed deck. This is Berger's own handling for his "Ben Berger Card Riser" dealer effect.
  • FLIPFAN. A flashy, flip-flop card flourish for the finger flingers.
  • FINGER STAND. A very pretty card production where a card appears between each of the fingers and thumb of one hand ala multiplying billiard balls.
  • POKER PLAYER'S DREAM. This routine fooled so many magicians that Berger was begged to include this in the book.
  • NO-PREP. A no-skill card effect with an unprepared deck with an unexpected climax.
  • CHANGO! Closing thoughts from the author.
  • About the Author.
